Monochrome Monday: Enter the Underworld

Entrance to the Underworld bw

descend into the earth

and find shelter within tangled mycelium

warmed by a blanket of fallen leaves and dirt

whilst earthworms coil amidst encapsulated

dreams of sunlight’s return

*

sleep in peaceful slumber

untouched by the Crone’s icy tears

by the crystalline frosts and bitter snowfalls

as she mourns her fallen consort and

awaits the turning wheel

    • Thank you very much, Jeanne. 🙂 I really enjoyed writing this one – even though my internet kept cutting out. WordPress wouldn’t save the draft, and I lost the whole thing several times!
